For this fresh and current exhibition, New Art Projects propose a new look and investigation into contemporary painting being made in the UK today. This exhibition brings together a selection of works suggested by Hedley Roberts. He has chosen UK based artistic talent from a variety of national and independent art schools to show alongside his own work. Since graduating from the Royal College of Arts, alongside his own practice, Roberts has been a tutor of contemporary art for many years and is currently Head of the School of Art & Design at the University of Bedfordshire. Primarily drawing on his experiences as a painter this show explores portraiture, identity politics, race, gender, the contemporary landscape, realism, abstraction and still life. A spectacular range of new works by hotly tipped artists.
